We are thrilled to present a unique offering: the Jaques Early Anderssen Drop Jaw Chessmen, Tournament Size, circa 1858. Crafted from boxwood and ebony, these exquisite chess pieces will transport you back in time.

Each piece is weighted and thoughtfully felted for a premium feel. The King proudly bears the "1858 Staunton" inscription on its rim, a mark of authenticity and quality. As you handle these chessmen, you'll notice the King side Rooks and Knights adorned with the regal King's crown mark atop their summits.

According to the renowned Camaratta Codex, these chessmen are in the style of the legendary Jaques Anderssen and were originally crafted around 1858. Notably, the Knights feature the distinctive Anderssen drop-jaw design, adding a touch of historical elegance to your gameplay. The Bishops are equally captivating with their wide vertical mitres.

The King stands regally at 3-1/2" in height and has a base diameter of 1-3/4". These Early Anderssen Drop Jaw Chessmen are a faithful reproduction.

In the realm of hand-carved products, it's essential to acknowledge that the artistry involved in crafting chess pieces and related items by hand can lead to unique variations. The use of wood, being a natural material, inherently results in differences in color, shade, and tone.

Furthermore, please keep in mind that the hand-carving process may introduce subtle differences between individual pieces within a set, adding to their individual character.

Additionally, for transparency, we want to clarify that the use of veneer is exclusive to our chess boards and boxes. All other items, including chess pieces and related accessories, are crafted from solid wood unless explicitly stated otherwise in our listings. This distinction is made to ensure compliance with CITES regulations governing lumber species while maintaining the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of our hand-carved products.

Hand-Carved Products Disclaimer:

  • Variations in Wood: Due to the natural and inconsistent nature of wood, expect variations in color, wood tones, shade, and tone.
  • Artistic Hand-Carving: Hand-carved products may exhibit subtle differences between individual pieces, enhancing their unique character and wood variance.
  • Approximate Weights and Sizes: Provided weights and sizes are approximate guides, considering the handmade nature of our products.
  • Chess Boards and Boxes: Unless explicitly labeled as "solid wood," chess boards and boxes are made with veneer to comply with CITES regulations. Other items are crafted from solid wood for quality and compliance.
